Rhonda and Morgan Early visit Spanish Wells in the Bahamas with their fourteen month-old blonde, blue-eyed son Warren. He disappears. After two frantic days they are informed the boy fell in the harbor and drowned. Sharks attacked the body. They wouldn’t want to remember their son that way. With no embalming facilities and strict U.S. drug laws, the grieving couple is presented with a tightly sealed casket and ushered off the island.
After Warren is buried in Florida, Rhonda’s torments begin. The boy calls to her in the dark. She is not dreaming. The image is overwhelmingly powerful. She knows her son is alive and she can prove it.
Morgan reluctantly agrees to dig up his son’s grave. The idea is abhorrent and completely illegal, but it may bring closure to Rhonda’s grief
The casket is empty.
Thus begins Rhonda and Morgan’s desperate quest to find their stolen son and the murderous reaction of the evil culprit.
